"What" do I do at Sparkrock:

At Sparkrock, Irina is a Solutions Architect, where she works with clients to design a system that meets their individual organizational needs. She loves how the work she does keeps her interested through the uniqueness of each clients’ needs and the problem solving that comes along with this. Working with products that are constantly being improved keeps Irina on her toes to stay current and come up with creative solutions. She loves working with clients and people who are as passionate about what they do as she is.

"How" do I do it:

Irina comes with a wealth of knowledge and experience under her belt. She has almost a decade of experience in software development and architecture, focusing in Microsoft-based applications. She has also worked with a variety of non-profit, government, energy, finance, and hospitality organizations, bringing a great understanding of the clients we serve at Sparkrock.

She is also a Microsoft Certified Professional and Technology Specialist in various versions of Dynamics CRM including customizations, configurations, extensions, and deployment.

Despite being level-headed and confident in the work she does for Sparkrock, Irina is a nervous flyer – but loves to travel! Her favourite places that she’s visited so far have been Grouse Mountain in Vancouver and Sydney, Australia’s Coastal Highway. If she’s not at work or traveling, Irina can be found playing board games (Settlers of Catan is a personal favourite), hiking, or playing with her squawky, but sweet, pet parrot.
